Edward I, farthing

This coin is only about 10mm in diameter but the illustrations are greatly enlarged. It was unearthed by John Lashmar, who asked for an ID and a valuation.

The coin is a class IIIg London farthing .of Edward I.  On the obverse the legend reads E R AnGLIE around the bust of King Edward. On the reverse the legend reads LON DON IEN SIS. In the Standard Catalogue the type is listed as number 1446.

Valuation

There is a weak area on both sides but the coin is otherwise in near VF condition and is nicely toned. Pricewise, I’d say around £70.
